Bill- I don’t think the format is the same. I get just a long list. It has the same info tho.
Ed- I didn’t mean to imply the Scout Shop doesn’t verify. Apologies if I miswrote something.
September will be my first Court of Honor since switching 100% to Scoutbook so I’m full of questions lately. (I’m the Troop Advancement Chair)
When I go to the shop to buy rank patches, merit badges, etc I always have the recognition report with me so I know how much of what to get. I also keep a hard copy of them in the Troop records just in case of an electronic snafu.
But since the electronic records sync to National our Scout Shop doesn’t accept the paper forms - there’s nothing that they do with them any more.
Yours in Scouting,
